Friday slowdown

We often feel that we are in control of our lives, like we can handle things. Satan loves for us to be in this mode.

We also often feel like we are so out of control that there is nowhere to turn . . . but there is! We can turn to Him! Does it take a lot to get our attention, and bring us back to that right relationship with Him?



I faced a mountain, 
That I never faced before 
That's why I'm calling on the Lord 
I know it's been awhile, 
But Lord please hear my prayer 
I need you like I never have before. 

Sometimes it takes a mountain 
Sometimes a troubled sea 
Sometimes it takes a desert 
To get a hold of me 
Your Love is so much stronger 
Then whatever troubles me 
Sometimes it takes a mountain 
To trust you and believe 

Forgive me, Jesus 
I thought I could control 
Whatever life would throw my way 
But this I will admit 
Has brought me to my knees 
I need you Lord and I'm not ashamed to say 

Sometimes it takes a mountain 
Sometimes a troubled sea 
Sometimes it takes a desert 
To get a hold of me 
Your Love is so much stronger 
Then whatever troubles me 
Sometimes it takes a mountain 
To trust you and believe 

Sometimes it takes a mountain 
To trust you and believe

DOES he EVER!!!! He loves it when we cry, despair, and spiral out of control and struggle. I use those times to pray and expect His help. Feeling His nearness, since His spirit dwells within we who are His children is calming. Because we are not alone...just as He said.

We have to listen, watch, and pray just as the Bible says. aIf we don;t, we let OUR personal "noise" obscure His answer.
